Marvel exhibit in Fordham commemorates Black History Month with Black Panther showcase
NYC Parks joined forces with Poe Park to honor Black History Month by showcasing original Black Panther comics and memorabilia at the Marvel exhibit in Fordham.
The Black Panther Lighting Power exhibit at the Poe Park Visitor Center displays work curated by Ray Felix including Black Panther comics, action figures and illustrations by Marvel and DC artists.
"The people who created the work were actually workers for marvel and for DC. This is their actual work. Some of them are literally drawings that they created even before it was printed,” said operations specialist and curator Shelton David.
Since the exhibit opened on Feb. 6, the center has had over 3,000 visitors come by to see the artwork. The exhibit will run through the rest of February and is free of admission.
